  • "I would like to thank Ms. Margret very much for all the hard work she has done with me and other students in her Citizenship class. It has helped me a lot to pass the Citizenship test and interview. The book is very easy and simple to learn and remember. Ms. Margret has a lot of experience, and great way to teach and deliver the information. Everyone in First Wesleyan church was very helpful and friendly."

  • "In the citizenship class, you learn what you need too and even more, with such an amazing teacher. In this class. I want to thank Margaret and First Wesleyan for sharing this service with the public because not many churches do this. With Margaret's help, I achieved my goal by becoming a US citizen. I assure you, whoever joins this class will not regret it."
